This group meets weekly on Monday mornings 10:00 - 11:30 at Leadon Bank Craft Room
Now in its second year this group is just about at intermediate level (B1)
Our ability to understand what we read and hear is far greater than our ability to express ourselves in speech but we’re definitely getting better. We often decide on a topic in advance so we have some of the vocabulary needed for conversation. For example, we recently discussed some of the music each one likes and responded to each others questions.
We can access a range of online listening material and sometimes watch video and TV programmes via the internet. Our watching has ranged from serious discussions about genetically modified organisms and organic farming to amusing children’s stories.
We’re finding it useful to occasionally revisit the grammar we’ve learnt and explore this in more depth. Using presentation software I can illustrate various language points with plenty of examples, show these on the television and provide handouts.
We have made remarkable progress in two years. And we laugh a lot when we’re together!
We have room for a couple of new members.
